ALEXANDRIA, D. C.
THURSDAY MORNING, MAY 25. We learn, that the dispensions between the Van Buren and Calhoun portions of the Loco Foco party are becoming more open and decided daily —and that a dcniontfTatioii will shortly be at tempted in Richmond, on the part of Mr. Cal houn's friends. Caleb Cushing, Minister to China, arrived in Washington yesterday, from his recent trip to the President's home—in Virginia. The editorof the Globe, in returning from his recent journey to the Western country, paid a visit to the Hermitage, the residence of General Jackson, and has given us, in the language of a devoted friend and admirer, a description of the General, his mansion, &c. &c. Considerable improvements, we are gratified to learn, are soon to be made on the river front of the town. A row of brick Warehouses will shortly be erected extending from the buildings, at the corner of King street on the wharf, beyond Lafayette alley. We notice, also, some improve ments in btiilding and repairing wharves and docks south of Prince street Ship Building in New York is on the rise.— There has been an improvement this spring in this branch of business. There is a good deal of political agitation in Missouri, this spring. Mr. Webster's late speech at Baltimore does not appear to give any great satisfaction in any quarter. 1 he subject of Commercial Treaties rcccntly broached by Mr. Webster, and favored by the Ad ministration, will attract, for the present, some attention. We have given, in another column, some views on both sides of the question. Where is the West3—They begin to feel crowded in Iowa, and talk of going "West!" It is said that Prof. Duibin, now travelling in Europe, will return in July; that he will publish a book of Travels and Observations, and if its character may be anticipated from the letters he has written home, which have been published, it will be work of raro value and interest. Senator Ailes.— It has oeen stateu mai sena tor Niles, from Connecticut, was about to resign in consequence of feeble health, but we are glad to learn there is no truth in the report. A Hart ford paper sajs:—"There is not the slighest ground for the suggestion that Mr. Niles will re sign. It is true that he has not enjoyed perfect health this spring; but it affords us pleasure to learn that he is now recovering, and that his phy sicians have no fears of his final restoration to sound health." The Wheat Crop.—We published yesterday the Circular of Mr. Geo. R. Budd, of St. Louis, on the condition and prospects of the growing wheat crop. The Cincinnati Chronicle does not view with favor the calculations of the Circular. It remarks—- "Mr. Budd says that he has received information from all quarters of the Union, through his correspondents, that enables him to say with certainty, that the crop of 1843 will be one-fourth less than that of 1842. We lend our selves to no such croaking. For Ohio it would, no doubt, be advantageous to have a short crop elsewhere. There is no danger of it here. But it is neither honest nor fair to spread such reports through the country, based upon supposed infor mation, supported by a column of calculations, as erroneous as the statement itself. It is too old and too silly a story, to gull Ohio farmers." The Boundary Commissioners were assem bling at Fredericton, and intend to clear out a gainthe due North line run by the Commissioners in 1S18, from the monument to the ri^er St. John, about three miles above the Grand Falls, and to erect penr.^nent monuments along its course.— Meantime, the survey of the St John, above the point where the due North line intersects it, will be carried on by Capt. Broughton and Mr. J. D. Featherstonhaugh, as Surveyors, and Capt. Ro binson and Lieut. Ripon as Astronomers, on the part of England, ith such officers as may be ap pointed to acton behalfofthe United States. Resignations in the Navy.—A letter from N. York says:—"Lieutenant Homans, of the Inde pendence, is understood to have again tendered his resignation, and it is hoped it will be accep ted and save the government the expense of a tri al and the service the disgrace that must follow." It is stated that Midshipman Shaw, also impli cated, has tendered his resignation. The following is an extract from u speech of Sir Robert Peel's, delivered on Mr. Hume's motion in the House of Commons on the 2d ot May. bir Robert said:—UI will not refer to the right of search or visit. What I have on a lormer occa sion stated to the House on this subject, is fully borne out by subsequent events. 1 said, and I say again, that no authority was given to make concessions on this point. We claim no right of visit, if we know the vessels to be American. If we do visit the vessels knowing them to be American, wc do it at our own risk and peril; and arc liable to be compelled to make compen sation should we take such a step." The following is copied from an English paper: —uIq a Diving Bell, recently, Col. Paycre, of London, went down to the bed of the Thames, and remained seven hours, cut oft' from all com munication with the upper air without experien cing any of the unpleasant effects usually atten dant upon such experiments, to the great surprise of a number of distinguished men of science, who witnessed his performance without the know ledge of his novel application of a couple of well known facts in chemistry. He took down in the boat with him two chemical substances, the one to absorb the carbonic achi gas as fast as generated by the lungs; the other to give oxugtn gas to sup ply the place of that consumed. The first of these is iouod in pure posasse, which readily ab sorbs its own weight of carbonic acid gas; the o tber in the sulphate of potasse, which, when heated, gives out a very large proportion of pure oxygen " The notes of the Farmers' Bank of Virginia and of the Bank of Virginia, of the Fredericks burg branches, are redeemed at the Merchants' Bank of Baltimore at one half per cent. The notes of the Bank of the Valley atWinchester and at ( harlestown, are alto redeemed at the same rate—Bolt. American. We regret to learn that the life ofthe great En· gmeer Brunei, the inventor and successful con structor ofthe Thames Tunnel, ha· been placed in jeopardy by a trifling; incident. To amuse the children of a friend, he was pretending; to pass money from his mouth to his ear, and vice terse, when a half sovereign slipped down his throat, and there remained. An incision in the thorax has been determined on, and the operation was to be performed at Bristol the day before the West ern sailed. Sir P. Brodie, one of the best physi cians in England, had been selected to manage the the precarious surgical operation.—National Fo rum. In the Ν. Y. City Council, on the 15th instant, a committee of three ^as appointed, on Alder man Purdy's motion, to make suitable prepara tions to receive President Tyler, on his contem plated visit to that city in June next, "and to ex tend to him those demonstrations of respect to which he is entitled as the head of our national government." This is very proper, no doubt, but it will have a most unfortunate effect, increasing and perpetuating the delusion under which that functionary now labors. The respect paid to the office, he will construe into admiration and re spect for the man; and when he returns to Wash ington, he will be fortified in the absured notion i that his nomination by the Locofocos is certain, ; and his election inevitable.—Lynchburg Virginia. ; The Horticultural Society of the District met at the City Hall,Saturday afternoon, and was well attended." Mr. Watterston presided, and Mr Van Zandt acted as Secretary. It was unanimously resolved that hereafter, the Society will* hold monthly Exhibitions, commencing on the second Thursday in June next ; and it was further resol ved, by acclamation, that the Society cannot prosper without the countenance .and aid of the ladies.—Georgetown Mvocate. Sailing Days of the Steamships. From England. From America. Great Western, Hoskcn, May 25 Caledonia, Lott, May 1 June 1 Acadia, Kyrie, May 19 June 16 Britannia, Hewitt, Juno 4 July 1 State Dedts—National Relief.—The Legis latures of a portion of the indebted States at their late sessions failed to make adequate provision for the annual interest of their debts. In view of this fact the subject of State indebtedness is assu ming—nay, it has already assumed an aspect so se rious and imposing, that no considerate man in the country can contemplate it without anxiety. What is to be done? Here in Maryland we have tried to do something in the way of a bargain. We I have attempted to sell tne State's interest in the pubiic works, founding our hopes of effecting the ι sale on the depreciation of the State's bonds ! which are to be received in payment. This it at best no pleasant alternative, nor is it likely, from present appearances, to result in any thing. If the transfer should be effected tho State would still be bound fora portion of her debt, with no J prospect of revenue from her improvements.— i Thus, in any aspect of tiie case, taxation seems ; inevitable. But in a general survey of State indebtedness • » II Ι —for it is in the general question mai we are un concerned, since it affects the American name ; and the honor of the Republic—what is the pros pect before us? We take it for granted that ail observant and thinking men in the Union have considered this matter. With many, it is proba ble, the cr.sis and the manner in which it shall result, will decide the question in their own minds whether our experiment of self-govern ment upon democratic principles has failed or succeeded thus far. If it shall appear that there is no inherent energy in our institutions to insure the keeping of public faith, to enforce the obli gations of contracts, to sustain the honor of the American name and credit in the simple matter of paying debts,—a failure in which is ruinous to an individual trader,—it will be apparent to other nations if not to ourselves that there is something , wanting in our system of government which 1 must re supplied if we would hold rank with the civilized communities of the earth. To do as ore pleases is a privilege of liberty; but the only liberty worth possessing, or that is capable of lasting, is held under such conditions as that one should be willing to do justly and deal fairly and honorably with others. Upon any other terms, liberty becomes a sort of Aigerine license which is not apt to be tolerated. We repeat the question—what is to be done ? Will the states do anything more? Those of them that have made inadequate provision for their indebtedness, will they complete at the next legislative sessions what was left imperfect at the last ? Upon the supposition that in every de ! linquent State the requisite taxes will be laid, it may do well to inquire how long those taxes are to be endured? Let all the probabilities which the most sanguine disposition can collect together be arrayed, and then let the considerate reader judge for himself how far they constitute the ba ; sis of a rational hope that anything effectual will ; be done by the deficient States for the sure resto I ration of their credit.—Bait. American. The Kentucky papers confirm the rumor of the violent death of our townsman John A. Rowan, : Esq., but they vary so widely as to the alleged ! causes of the quarrel between him and his bro i ther-in-Iaw, Dudley Woolfolk, by whom he was ! shot, that we shall wait for more authentic par ! ticulars. A pecuniary transaction between Mr. Rowan ancî his father-in-law was doubtless the real cause of the conflict.—Lynchburg Virginian. ηηΛΤΛ/ΓDn/^τ a i Vy ν; ινχ ι > ι jj uu i:\ju.

One cargo Oats sold at 28 cents. TOBACCO.—The quantity offering this week is very limited, we quote common §3 a $3,50; good to prime, $4$ a 7. We learn that the prospect of the Wheat crop in Virginia is good. Money in New York continues abundant.— Good paper is discounted in the street at 44 and 5 per cent. The Bankers find it exceedingly dif ficult to obtain good paper. In Philadelphia bu siness paper is scarce, and is readily discounted at 5 per ceut. per annum. NEW ORLEANS MARKET, MAY 17. Tobacco.—In our Review of Friday last, we stated that the Tobacco market had closed with great firmness after the large transac tions of the week preceding, and since then we have again to notice that the demand has con tinued good, purchasers fer all quarters having operated to some extent. The receipts have been large, but there is no undue accumulation of stock, and prices in consequence exhibit in creased firmness. We quote Ordinary lots 2$ a 2J, 3jt a 3} and a 4i; Fair lots 2A, 3J and 4Jc; Fine lots 2^, 3} and 4j; Selertiso$ 3, 4 and 5c., and in some instances a fraction higher. Amongst the sales, which amount to 1000 hhds. we notice 119 hhds. X at 2£ and 2$c.; 78 hhds. of which 6 F at 4J, 21 Seconds 2$ and 51 X 2$c; 22 hhds. Firsts and Seconds and 3Jc; 50 hhds.

PETERSBURG MARKET, MAY 22. Tobacco.—Little or no change—if any, it is rather favorable. Inspections large. Lugs$2 to i $2,50; Leaf $3 to $8. The quantity in the ware i houses is unusually large. ! Cotton".—Small sales at 5£c to 6^—receipts light. Flour.—None in raaket, except for retail trade, at $4,50 to $4,75. I Corn'.—55 to 60 cents. Bacon.—Virginia 6} to 6$: Western 5 to 5£. ι The Spring trade has been unusually light and collections small. The superfluity of money I complained of in England and the Northern Cities j is not felt here.—Petersburg Intelligencer. Canadian- Tariff.—The Boston Atlas remarks ; that the duties imposed by the Canadian Legis ! lature on American products, take effect on the j first of Julv. On wheat the duty is seven and a J half cents per bushel, and on flour 80 cis. per bbl. i No distinction is made between flour going to j England, whether manufactured from wheat pro | duced in Canada or in the United States; it is still j to be admitted as Canadian produce, at a duty of some ten cents per barrel. ι The duty in England on American flour, is ' equal to a prohibition, and the only way it can be j avoided is by manufactnring the wheat in Canada. The case is similar with provisions. If packed in Canada, whether raised there or in this coun try, they are admitted at the same duty, and this is merely nominal; whereas, if packed in this country, they cannot be sent as heretofore through Canada. POSTSCRIPT. ! Madison 8l Greene.—We understand through I private communication from these Counties, that I dissatisfaction prevails to a great extent, and with each party: that Mr. Gilmer was not the choice by an ν means, of the bulk of those who voted for him: and that the moderate men com plain of keeping open the polls as unjustified by the state of the weather.—Richmond ffhig. The Council has commenced the labor of re trenchment. The salary of the Mayor has been reduced from six thousand to five thousand dollars —the salary of the Attorney from two thousand to fifteen hundred dollars. The other salaries have been reduced, generally, in a similar propor tion.—*V. O. Tropic. I Mr. Wise declares not only that Ins District is ι Republican now, but that it "always has been so." Indeed! Will the Enquirer and his other - · - ' .· tir ·ι rk ! new nines endorse tn:ii necjarauon: u i\.e· publican, when, under the lead of Mr. Wise him ! self, it gave upwards of 1000 majority against the I so called Republican candidate for the Presiden I cy in 1840—and for a man who was stigmatized as a "black cockade federalist'? Was it Repub 1 lican when it sent that avowed and veteran fede ί rali*t, Thomas ΛΙ. Bayly, to Congress, in opposi tion to that sterling Republican. Burwell Bassett? Was it Republican—we appeal to the friends of Mr. Calhoun for an ansver—when it first elected Henry A. AVise to Congress, as the defender of the Proclamation, against Richard Coke, the champion of State Rights? Mr. Wise's memory I is surely at fault!—Lynchburg Virginian. The delegates to the Democratic Convention, to he held at Columbia, H. C., on Monday next, are beginning to come in freely, and we shall doubtless have a large gathering to perform the ! play of "Much ado about nothing." The State I is unanimous for her own favorite and distin guished son, and this Convention, to say the least, is de trop. Mr. Vax BruEx's recent accession to ' a spring instead of a fall Convention—May next, instead of November next—will take away the : chief theme of denunciation and debate, and . leave the wire workers somewhat in a puzzle ' what to do. Mr. Van Uurex, when the National I Convention does assemble, u ill doubtless claim large amends for his present concession—nothing le^s than to concede him the nomination, as lie has so generously conceded the time of meeting. Abus verrons—Charleston Courier. LADIES FAIR—.It Fairfax Court-house. —A Fair will be held at Fairfax Court House, of t the 19th day of June, 1843, for the purpose on ' aiding in the erection of a house of worship, at that place for the use of the Methodist Episcopal !
